Worm and Worm Gears pieces transfer motion between nonintersecting right position shafts. They will be the most compact little precision gears system offered, as well as the quietest and smoothest working. A worm and worm gears established can provide a higher reduction ratio in an exceedingly small space.
EP has been production worm and wheel equipment systems for over 30 years. We offer worms and worm gears units in various ” and metric sizes and with several pitch, tooth count, and hub choices. Our precision surface stainless worm and wheels and phosphor bronze worm gears supply the best accuracy, smoothest procedure, and longest working existence.

EP’ POWERFUL Worm Gear Systems
A worm is configured much like a equipment screw, but with tooth designed to mesh with one’s teeth of a worm wheel. These tiny precision gears may possess sole or multiple threads (named starts). With each revolution, a single-start worm will approach the linked worm wheel by one tooth; worms with multiple begins will maneuver the mating worm gear a corresponding quantity of tooth with each revolution. (e.g., a 2-begin worm will move it is worm wheel two tooth per revolution.)
Standard worm equipment worm wheels feature directly, helical-cut teeth and offer only one point of contact with the worm. EP presents “throated” worm wheels with curved, helical-cut tooth whose curves meet the radius of the worm itself. Throated worm tires provide a much greater speak to area, which vastly boosts load capacity and longevity.
